Vatican City (Agenzia Fides) - After the general audience today in St. Peter's Square, the Holy Father launched an appealed for the tragic situation in South Suda, with these words: "Of particular concern is the painful news coming from suffering South Sudan, where a fratricidal conflict is compounded by a severe food crisis in the Horn of Africa region, which condemns to death by starvation millions of people, including many children. At this time, it is more necessary than ever that all commit not to stop at making statements, but also to provide concrete food aid and to allow it to reach suffering populations. May the Lord sustain these our brothers and all those working to help them". (SL) (Agenzia Fides 22/02/2017)
